If you are an avid blogger or blog reader, you know how important it is to easily find “subcribe” buttons or “follow me” buttons in a blog. Just this morning I receive a direct mention from a new blogger I am following about her not being a able to find my follow me Twitter button easily. Unfortunately, the free wordpress theme I am using now comes with built in buttons for Twitter and Facebook so I cannot make changes to it. BUT! That is a big BUT! I can still add Twitter buttons to my other five blogs.
Now, the problem is, what kind of Twitter button do I use and where do I get it? There are plenty — and I mean PLENTY — of free Twitter button sites out there. I am now ready to round up my top free Twitter button generators.
- Free Twitter Buttons — The first site I have stumbled too and I absolutely love it. It is so easy to get a buton. All you have to do enter your Twitter ID and click go. Copy the code and paste it on your blog and web site. You can select from the 180 Twitter button designs that they have out there. On page 8, you can find sports-theme Twitter buttons like the one below. Follow me!
- 100 Remarkably Beautiful Twitter Icons and Buttons — This is not a generator but a blog post from Hongkiat.com. However, it lists some good twitter buttons that you can use. I definitely like this Twitter icon. It’s so adorable I want to hug it, assuming it comes to life as a mascot.
- Twitter-Buttons.com — It doesn’t have a lot of designs — just 10 designs in all. But I found this dishevelled Twitter icon that made me smile )see below). Plus if you don’t like your Twitter icon looking plump as a free range chicken, then you can get anorexic looking ones here.
- Twitter Icon — Very cute looking site with lots of good looking Twitter icons and buttons. As of this writing, they’ve got more than 140 free Twitter icons. The best thing about this site is that you can easily sort the Twitter icons. You can sort by the newest, highest rated and most popular through a drop-down menu on top. If you would like a girly Twitter icon, then you can definitely get that here. Below is what I call an Angelina Jolie inspired Twitter icon. So sexy!
- Siah Designs — Want animated Twitter icons? Then ho here. It has a very zen-like collection of Twitter icons. I liked this running bird icon.
There you go! I am sure that you will have your eyes full with these sites that I have mentioned. Connect with me on Twitter by clicking on any of those cute Twitter icons above.
